are triggered. they estimate that would cause the economy to take a significant hit, raising unemployment to 9.1% by the end of next year. but the real political sticking point is taxes. the president called on congress to make tax cuts for people making less than $200,000, and making less than $250,000, and drew a line in the sand. >> i refuse to accept any approach that is not balanced. and on tuesday night, we found out the majority of americans agree with my approach. >> reporter: the president was referring to the tuesday exit poll which indicated nearly 60% of voters would support higher taxes on the wealthy.çó and while john boehner hinted at some taxes going up, he also listed some conditions. >> and it is not like there is money in social security or medicare. this has to be dealt with, so everything, everything on the revenue side and on the spending side has to be looked at. >> reporter: now brian, the white house says that social security shouldn't be a part of these negotiations. but i can tell you, republicans won't participate if social security is not. >> all right, chuck tod

to send the economy back into a nose dive. what's your sense in washington? are both sides -- do both sides still have an appetite to play brinksmanship or is there a real desire to get this done? >> as i talk to people on capitol hill, lester, and in the administration, there is still wariness on both sides. one for the other. but there is a different attitude. they both see some room for breakthrough here. i think both sides recognize that the public has spoken lo loudly about the importance of compromise. but the public has also reaffirmed the status quo in washington. so the president is in a position, and you heard him at the end of the week insisting that tax rates for wealthy americans are going too much to go up. or taxes, more generally. so i think that's where he feels the mandate of a second term and he's going to drive a hard bar fwan. but i think he's going to try to work in a way to make it very difficult for republicans to say no to a new approach, again, undering people want something to get done on this on deficit reduction and then move on to some other issues. >> gi
